3.83/5  rDev +1.1%

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a very cloudy straw yellow color with a creamy white head. The head slowly fades to a thick ring around the edges and a thin film across the top. Copious amounts of carbonation bubbles rise to the top giving it a lively appearance. Some spotted lacing is left behind.

S: Off the bat, I'm picking up lots sour green apples and touches of barnyard funk. A lemony citrus characteristic also comes through along with yeast aromatics and light spices (black pepper and corriander). An amazing blend of aromas.

T: Unfortunately, the taste does not live up the aroma. I'm left wondering what happened to the green apples and lemon. In their place, I'm still getting some barnyard funk but also some grassy and earthy characteristics.

M: Medium bodied with surprisingly, a light amount of carbonation. It has a refreshingly crisp finish.

O: This was my first (and hopefully not last) offering from Logsdon. I really enjoyed this one and look forward to trying more from this unique brewery.

Bottle No KW 2642, best before January, 2013. Poured from a 750mL bottle into my Hoegaarden tumbler.

Pale lightly cloudy sunglow liquid is capped with a heavily active ivory head. Retains a decent collar. Sandy delicate lacing.

Coriander is quite present in the nose along with red bananas and other esters and suggestions of spice. The malt aroma reveals a bit more complexity suggesting oats in addition to the wheat.

Mild lactic tartness in the palate entry backed with wheat, orange blossoms, unusual spice notes and an odd pronounced fruitiness. Very low hop presence with little to no bitterness. Finishes slightly dry with a lingering acidity and a faintly grainy/grapey aftertaste.

Medium-light bodied though lacking in effervescence to some degree, but the acidity makes up for this.

Very fresh example of the style, well crafted though not perfectly integrated or controlled (a few "wild" and otherwise odd flavors emerge).

Bottle: Poured a super pale yellow color ale with a very large foamy head with perfect retention and incredible lacing. Aroma of light coriander with loads of dry Bretty notes with some wheat malt notes also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by a mix of coriander, wheat malt with loads of dry Brett notes. Body is light with incredible carbonation. Very refreshing with bone dry finish.

3.7/5  rDev -2.4%

Poured from the bottle into an elongated tulip glass, which is as close to the glass recommended on the bottle.

Just an aggressive but in controlled wit. Deep lemon bright opaque yellow colored body, with lots of fine carbonation. A great foamy and bubble bath retention soaped up bleach thick white head, and whipped cream looking clumps and valleys. A few minor floaties in the body, but nothing too crazy. Impressive.

The bouquet is real nice even as it pours you can smell it. Deep notes of clove, and breaded toast. Sharp lemon like citrus and a good sense of yeasty bread dough. Quite nice, and a hint of grassed herb.

Palate comes a bit wet and overly carbonated. Much of the mid palate fills with a little bit of gas, but large sour bursts of citrus lemon juice. Bready depth and flavor hinted on the nose doesn't seem to translate as much on the finish either. Slight lemon soda fizzy, but not too bad.

It's a witbier alright but feels a bit dumbed down once you taste it. It's ok.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a slightly cloudy light golden amber. Fine two finger head with good retention and lacing. Nice active carbonation; looks good. Aroma of wheat, light bready yeast, lemon and a hint of coriander and funk. Flavor has the light wheat, lemon and coriander expected in a wit, but also a distinct funky wild yeast and lactic component. The sourness of lemon is replaced by wild yeast sourness, which seems to express the brett saison orientation of this brewery. The funk is mild and well behaved, so the flavor is well balanced. A bit on the sour side for my taste, but well made and the witbier elements are satisfying. Light to medium bodied, which is appropriate for the style, with active carbonation giving a decent mouth feel. An interesting take on a witbier from a quality brewery. I'm not a big brett fan, so I'm glad I tried this witbier rather than Logsdon's wild yeast ales.

4.3/5  rDev +13.5%

Poured into a snifter. Label says Best Enjoyed by 06/2013.

A- Pours a hazy straw color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains decently before popping away to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and an abundance of surface foam. Resilient sheet of lacing slowly slides down the glass.

S- Crisp and Bretty with some sour undertones. Wheat in the backdrop provides a nice template for the overall profile. Mildly funky.

T- The wild yeast plays off the palate gently with a slightly acidic flavor and feel. Somewhat tart as the wheat brings everything together. Possibly some spice thrown in the mix as well. Notes of lemon, apple, pear and white grape.

M- Very crisp with the lightest bit of pucker. Light body and medium-high carbonation.

O- Very tasty spontaneously fermented take on the style. Thank you SatlyMalty for my first Logsdon as it is a good one.
